Perl 6 new logo suggestions?


The information about the original Camila Logo states that Larry Wall requested a Perl 6 logo that with the following features:

    Fun
    Cool
    Cute
    Named
    Lively
    Punable
    Personal
    Concrete
    Symmetric
    Asymmetric
    Attractive
    Relational
    Metamorphic
    Decolorizable
    Shrinkable to textual icon
    Shrinkable to graphical icon
And may have attached "P6" wings on it. Should discourage misogyny. Sterility is not on the list of requirements. "I want something with gut appeal on the order of Tux". "The new logo must make Larry at least as happy as Camelia does."


This is my suggestion for a Perl 6 logo. It's a "P-V-6" butterfly (Perl Version 6):

 

(Logo suggestion created by Rodrigo de Almeida Siqueira - @rsiqueira)

The "Perl 6" font is "Adobe Caslon Pro", it's not the same as "ITC Garamond" that was used to write "Perl" in the "Programming Perl" book cover.
The butterfly wings (letter "P" and number "6") were created with a rotated number "6" using font "Charlemagne Std".

The blue color inside the wings is rgb code: #6699cc

Like it or not?
Suggestions accepted!


Other images that I like that could be used as inspiration for a Perl6 Logo:
